Listening to "Winter Weather" and "Let it Snow" isn't exactly pleasant when it's 50 and sunny out.


Nope. Don't hit the "feels" quite the same. Not at all.

Honestly at this rate, I wouldn't be shocked to see us without a single subzero low this year. It's happened once before here. Not saying it will happen, but as long as the PV favors Eurasia, as well as areas North of here having little to no snowpack, it'll be hard to come across any real cold. By the time any drastic pattern change happens at this rate, it may be too late or not intense enough to support subzeros. Especially seeing models are showing a somewhat similar pattern for January, albeit less dry.

Feb 1899, it happened in Chicago next to Lk. Michigan. It can certainly happen in The Plains by you. Hoping you aren't suffering with bare ground tho like they did.

Usually don't post here as I'am always postive in life. But lately down. Being a snow lover. Other things matter more in life, but this as a weather deal?   DSM is easily on pace (2.7" through this season of snow as of this writing ) the record low is is between 8.5 and 9.0" for a winter season. It just doesn't snow anymore in the DSM area--- which would lead one to believe DSM is due...-- I haven't even needed a snowblower in the last 3 years and the last two years; a shovel has been basically replaced buy a broom or air blower--  broom when we do get snow showers. Desperate  in Des Moines... Asking for help for my mental stability. :o) The constant brown ground has got me down--- what do I do??? HA. Those who think Nebraska is down- what about DSM? Will hang up and listen to thoughts and ideas... Past the  point of even Tom helping- I think I need serious professional help.....

I feel for you Grizz, especially this year. As for the Nebraska thing, I will say this is the one year we've done better than you. We've been down too. Your complaints in here are very valid, but so are ours.

I find it funny how many people are complaining in the other threads with zero criticism. I don't have a problem with complaining in other threads, but the people who do are oddly.... Quiet 🤔. Especially considering some of those are the ones complaining about Nebraska posters constantly. Justttttt saying.

06Z GFS says let it snow where it snows and NO SNOW where it doesnt snow.And it doesn't snow anymore in C.IA. At least to make 1" in a 24hr period. This pattern sucks. I personally think DSM has a serious shot of going under 15" of snow for the winter season and a good shot at breaking the all time record for least snowiest (between 8-9")

 

Any takers??? I give 10 to 1 on the least snowiest winter on record  at this range for DSM--- which really should be 137:1. ( or so)   2.7" through the end of DEC should be enticing. I take bets via paypal - Who  wants to make a proposition? Talk is cheap. Actions matter and results are worth bragging. I like Tom and all, but if he was a betting man with his positiviness - he would be bankrupt . No issues agst TOM- he brings light to my day, but nothing in C.IA (not mby, but a large region) is going on. It's the worst winter since -- 2-3 years ago. Winters here have consistently sucked to the point that even OMA and LNK have more snow in the past 3 years than DSM to this date. (no issues to my friends out W-- just that typically DSM sees more moisture than you)   I'am willing to wager that DSM will not see over 15" the entire winter which I believe is at least top 10 crap.  One - two or even 5 times - I get it, randomness. But this is talking 20 or so storms (events)  since last Winter where DSM has gotten not only the shaft, but the ladder to the abyss. One would think averages would work out, but averages in DSM over the past 4-5 years for snowfall are near lowest ever observed for any 4-5 period since 1878/.

 

d**n AGM GLobal Warming. I might just buy some "carbon credits" --- to "offset" this anomaly. Bigger "HA!" . But some take it serious, so I regress. Even myself after a weather rant and being passionate and all understand that the weather is uncontrollable and that life posses bigger issues (which I have) . It's like randomness in a bottle--- just wish this "randomness" would come around here some time this winter-- I will even take next winter. Enough. Sorry for the rant. And I wish the snow lovers the best. Get it when you can, cause the lean times are coming.

I have always thought animals have a sense we humans do not. Today (no joke) I saw several large flocks of Canadian Geese flying NORTH. I think they sense that foreseeable future is more March like than the dead of winter.

Yeah I paid attention to the mitt last spring/Summer. Looked brutal there. Absolutely zero thunderstorms from what I saw. At least in the bustiest years here we're guaranteed at least a couple tornado watches and a severe storm or two.

So windy here today the grass clippings are blowing around!!! instead of blowing snow - it's blowing grass in early JAN!!  :o

 

2.7" snowfall total for the season at DSM.  1.7" since late NOV. On pace to shatter the (least amount ever recorded)  record of 8" and change..... trace for 2019- on pace for a trace for 2019. . It just doesn't snow here. I haven't even needed to use a shovel this season.Not ONE TIME.!! At least I can laugh at those who went out and bought brand new snowblowers before the NOV storm that never was... In all seriousness there hasn't been but one 6"+ snowfall here in the last 3 years to even use a snowblower. Getting one ready for storage with draining the gas and all could be done in DEC!!!  Oh yeah- "Winter" is half over Jan 14th.

Still no subzero readings here. We need a massive pattern change fast or it'll be the second season in history without any subzero temps. Our average window to see them is roughly mid-December to mid-February.

I can see it easily happening-- especially with no snow on the ground. Sarcasm intentional.

I don't like to complain often, but after waiting 2 whole months to get a decent snowfall/cover, then to watch it get washed away after just 3 short days is a major crotch-kick! None of my decent snow cover has lasted anywhere close to a week. I can accept that when it's November, but the 3rd week of January?? In Michigan?? Gettin the ol Ohio treatment so far this winter and it's a horrid twist. Absolute opposite of all the notoriously snowy winters of yore. What a joke! Most of the countryside is back to ugly brown with splotchy white spots. After such a beautiful winter's day just Sunday, it was the exact opposite and a real downer driving home after work. This great winter's been mostly brown around here it's sad to say. Somebody has the nerve to mention 13-14 lol. I had 200% more snow at this point. This year and that shouldn't even be mentioned in the same conversation!

You have had it bad for sure I will not take that from you......but this is what I laugh at. Look at the tongue of no snowfall along the Platte river going all the way into iowa. There is snow depth all around me and I’m in the middle enjoying brown grass while Lincoln and Omaha and points every where else have 5+ inches of snow. Weirdest thing I have ever seen

That is terrible. As o have said, many of us in Nebraska have had a good snowfall winter, but several places keep getting missed and unfortunately that includes your area. It stinks, I’ve had those winters in my area where storms miss in all directions.

I can’t complain too bad because I got nailed last year while almost everyone else had some really bad luck. It’s just really unusual how this has set up where you have that small area splitting the state with no snow.

06Z GFS says let it snow where it snows and NO SNOW where it doesnt snow.And it doesn't snow anymore in C.IA. At least to make 1" in a 24hr period. This pattern sucks. I personally think DSM has a serious shot of going under 15" of snow for the winter season and a good shot at breaking the all time record for least snowiest (between 8-9")



Any takers??? I give 10 to 1 on the least snowiest winter on record at this range for DSM--- which really should be 137:1. ( or so) 2.7" through the end of DEC should be enticing. I take bets via paypal - Who wants to make a proposition? Talk is cheap. Actions matter and results are worth bragging. I like Tom and all, but if he was a betting man with his positiviness - he would be bankrupt . No issues agst TOM- he brings light to my day, but nothing in C.IA (not mby, but a large region) is going on. It's the worst winter since -- 2-3 years ago. Winters here have consistently sucked to the point that even OMA and LNK have more snow in the past 3 years than DSM to this date. (no issues to my friends out W-- just that typically DSM sees more moisture than you) I'am willing to wager that DSM will not see over 15" the entire winter which I believe is at least top 10 crap. One - two or even 5 times - I get it, randomness. But this is talking 20 or so storms (events) since last Winter where DSM has gotten not only the shaft, but the ladder to the abyss. One would think averages would work out, but averages in DSM over the past 4-5 years for snowfall are near lowest ever observed for any 4-5 period since 1878/.



d**n AGM GLobal Warming. I might just buy some "carbon credits" --- to "offset" this anomaly. Bigger "HA!" . But some take it serious, so I regress. Even myself after a weather rant and being passionate and all understand that the weather is uncontrollable and that life posses bigger issues (which I have) . It's like randomness in a bottle--- just wish this "randomness" would come around here some time this winter-- I will even take next winter. Enough. Sorry for the rant. And I wish the snow lovers the best. Get it when you can, cause the lean times are coming.

. Nice rant!! Lol

That is truly pathetic.  This decade overall has been very awful, but THIS is the biggest kick in the balls of all.  I can't watch Lincoln and Omaha get accumulating snow again..

 

It has literally been EVERY direction.  You and I are just not getting any love.  Brown ground since the first week of December..unbelievable.
